    Review: 'The Union' Is A Love Letter To Leon Russell From Cameron Crowe & Elton John

    A documentary portrait by filmmaker and avid music lover Cameron Crowe ("Almost Famous," "Pearl Jam Twenty"), "The Union" has a pretty simple concept: chronicling the making of The Union, the eponymously titled album by Elton John and the ultimate rock & roll session man Leon Russell, a musician als...

    Rotterdam Review: Takashi Miike's 'Ace Attorney' A Stylish, Bizarre Video Game Adaptation & Legal Satire

    Takashi Miike made his first big international splash in Rotterdam, with "Audition" in 2000, and then began a run of productivity that few filmmakers, even famously prolific ones, can match. This is the man who made "Visitor Q," "Ichi the Killer" and "The Happiness of the Katakuris" in the same year...

    Rotterdam Review: Vincent Gallo's Unhinged, Dual Role Performance Can't Save Pretentious 'Legend Of Kaspar Hauser'

    Disco, flying saucers, long-haired Sheriffs who speak in the lilting accents of American southerners on Italian beaches. You can’t fault director Davide Manuli for trying. He throws everything at the wall that is his update of “The Legend of Kaspar Hauser” and if only a tiny fracti...

    Madonna's W.E.: Half Truth, Half Dare

    Madonna could not have had a more enthusiastic and welcoming audience for W.E. than I was when I walked into the screening room. I’m fascinated by the inexhaustible Wallis Simpson story. We may never understand the psycho-sexual-political drama that led Edward VIII to abdicate so he could...

    Review: 'Splinters' Is A Compelling Surfing Doc With More On Its Mind Than Just Hanging Ten

    By focusing on cultural barriers rather than killer waves, director Adam Pesce has created a compelling surfing documentary in “Splinters.” The film explores life in the remote Papua New Guinea island of Vanimo, where surfing is considered not just the most important of sports, but the o...

    The Woman In Black—movie review

    As ghost stories go, this one isn’t bad, but the filmmakers take an awfully long time getting to the actual plot, content to spend the first half of the movie doling out “boo!” moments…more than I’ve ever experienced in one motion picture! Most of them are pretty effec...

    Review: 'Love Etc.' Is A Sweet Valentine To Love In NYC

    Consider "Love, Etc." to be an antidote to the cloying saccharine taste of cynical big-studio cash grabs like "Valentine's Day." Yes, both films chronicle love in different forms and at different times in life, but "Love Etc." does so with a sense of both gravity and sweetness. The film opens with a...

    Declaration Of War—movie review

    It’s been decades since television created a genre that pundits labeled “disease-of-the-week” movies. Cable networks such as Lifetime have kept the form alive, because such stories are natural fodder for relatable drama, while medical TV shows have never gone out of style.
